   3. Involvement of all stakeholders and community members helps improve student achievement.

   4. School policies, procedures and expectations must be easily understood and effectively                              communicated.

   5. Proficiency for all learners is achieved through strong instructional programs taught by highly qualified        teachers.

   6. Teacher collaboration around student learning improves the quality of instructional.

   7. Exceptional students must have access to programs and services tailored to their unique needs.

   9. Students should be encouraged to consider attending college.
